Qatar Consumer Electronics Report

BMI View: Our positive outlook for Qatar's consumer electronics market is underpinned by high consumer spending power, rapid population growth from the influx of migrant workers and the government's continued commitment to investment in the ICT sector, as part of its goal to reduce the country's dependence on hydrocarbons. Qatar's wealthy consumers will drive value growth in the consumer electronics market through take-up of high-end smartphones, tablets and TVs. Mobile operators Ooredoo and Vodafone will contribute to this trend, as they encourage subscribers to migrate to 4G mobile services and increasingly target consumers with multi-play service offerings, compatible with multiple device ownership. Meanwhile, the government's expansionary policies have resulted in a rapidly growing population of migrant workers to support the construction and hospitality sectors. This is in turn driving volume growth in the consumer electronics market, while an expanding tourism sector is boosting demand for AV devices.

Expenditure Projections

  • Computer hardware sales: We forecast sales of USD543mn in 2014 and forecast this to rise to USD651mn in 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.7% in US dollar terms. After a decline in tablet volumes in 2014 we expect the market will return to growth over the medium term, but significantly slower than during the initial boom.

  • AV sales: We forecast growth to increase from USD400mn in 2014 to USD464mn in 2019, a CAGR of 3.0% in US dollar terms. The TV market is stagnant in volume terms, but an increased share of UHD sets in the sales mix will have a disproportionate impact on market value and underpin value growth.

  • Handset sales: We forecast growth to rise from USD492mn in 2014 to USD618mn in 2019, a CAGR of 4.7% in US dollar terms. Qatar has a robust outlook for handset sales considering the maturity of the market. The key factor is the high incomes of local consumers and the preference for...
